Quotes

Paul Brooks: [narrating] Paul Brooks journal day 518. It was once said that those suffering from the incapacity to love are living in hell. I often wonder if Dostoevsky wanted to say more, because what I know of hell isn't simply a place where love doesn't exist. Nor is it a place you go when you die. Hell is here, in this facility. In the body and in the mind.Hell is a battle you know you will one day lose. It's waking up every morning with the very real threat that it could be your last. It's watching ...

Ambitious sci fi needs an ambitious budget......
27 May 2018 | by s3276169See all my reviews

Genesis looked encouraging on first inspection but sadly, a closer look proved me wrong.

I'm afraid ambitious sci fi, needs an equally ambitious budget. This film in short simply lacks the $$ to meet any possible potential it might have had. That said, the general idea behind this film has been done before and done much much better too. Blade Runner is the obvious point of comparison (granted they are not the same but the general concept is).

Acting wise Genesis does do a good job. There is some decent talent brought on board for this project such as John Hannah. Its a shame the rest of the film could not live up to expectations.

As it stand marginally watchable but by no means special. 5/10 from me.
